Ahhhh the river is coming back towards normal

Last Friday I had the pleasure of sharing my boat with Jimmy.  Jimmy had contacted me a year before trying to get a date set up for his first ever walleye trip on the Mississippi River Jimmy came all the way up here from Florida..  Friday we finally got this thing taking offor his bucket list. 

We caught lots of walleyes and saugers today using several techniques to do so.from pulling cranks, dragging jigs to pitching shorelines.  Our biggest obstacle was the constant rain we dealt with for the first four hours of our trip but we hung it out and it was well worth it.  The bite was consistent today we really did not have a down time on the bite.  I believe with the river is going to have a pretty good bite for a while with the water staying so high this year.  All them fish have been living up in the trees without antone being able to get to them.  

Jimmy it was a blast taking you out for your first experience on the river and look forward to it again when you come back up in two years.  Jimmy is pictured below with some of his catch from today.  

Water level forus today was 9 ft. The river temperature was 75 degrees and the clarity is fair.  I did see a mayfly hatch on the river while out last week.   Good luck out there guys and gals !!!!
